Dear Dr. Love,I have been with my girlfriend for 3 1/2 years, and we have lived together for about a year. In this past year, the relationship seems to have fallen apart. We can’t talk without arguing, and we just don’t seem to know one another anymore.My girlfriend says that I don’t talk to her with the respect that I do other people, and that I don’t talk about things that are important. I believe that she just over reacts to many things. I believe that my inability to talk about important things is a reaction to her doing the same.Her father passed away a little over a year ago, and I just don’t feel like she has really opened up to me since then. I don’t think that her father’s death has anything to do with out relationship trouble, but I have noticed that since then, we just haven’t been able to communicate.What can we do make this work. I know that our communication with one another is lacking, but I do not know what to do to get us where we were, or where we want to be. Looking For Answers
